UAW president faces probe over alleged retaliation, obstruction of federal investigation


United Auto Workers President Shawn Fain is under investigation for alleged retaliation against other union leaders, according to a Monday court filing, Reuters reported.

The union’s secretary-treasurer, Margaret Mock, was reportedly stripped of her duties for allegedly “engag[ing] in misconduct while carrying out her financial oversight responsibilities.” However, Mock claimed the accusations were false and instead insisted that Fain retaliated against her because she was reluctant to authorize “certain expenditures” from Fain’s office, the filing revealed.

‘Sometimes you have to rock the boat.’

Fain also accused Rich Boyer, the leader of the union’s Stellantis department, of “dereliction of duty” regarding a collective bargaining issue. The court filing indicated that Fain was again accused of retaliation for stripping Boyer’s duties.
